Today it was announced that Norwegian Jon Ola Sand will carry on the torch after Svante Stockselius’ resignation earlier this year.

We have taken a closer look at this bloke’s previous accomplishments and the challenges that lies ahead.

He was executive producer for ESC 2010 in Oslo, here’s a snap shot of the fabulous stage area at Telenor Arena.


From now on he will be responsible for pleasing this lot.


And he needs to keep track of what’s going on on this scoreboard.

Perhaps he will ask his daddy for some advice? Joa’s new EBU colleagues should be prepared for a few prank calls, then.









We wish him the best of luck in his new job, he better start rehearsing the famous one-liner “Good Evening Europe, and thank you Düsseldorf for a wonderful show!”
